and to that point you talk about guns as an infectious disease in america. we have 300 million guns in america. almost one per citizen. is the disease too far in to the body to really do something? we have senator feinstein talking about banning assault weapons and can't talk about retroactively banning. we can only talk about going forward. are there too many guns for america to be able to go back? >> i don't really think so at all. we can make a big dent. i can talk about where i'm from which is massachusetts and we have sensible gun control laws and it's very hard for criminals in massachusetts to get guns from massachusetts and so what they have to do is somebody brings guns in to them from new hampshire and vermont and then south carolina up the iron pipeline. we would do very well in massachusetts if we had a one gun per month law nationally to make it so it's not profitable to bring guns in to the inner city gangs. i think there's lots of things to do. and i just want to mention one thing which gun owners can do. we are trying to push this notion of the 11th commandment of gun safety an
, and my feeling is no one really believes the united states of america is going to default on its debt even if it lapses. we're dealing with different things. one is real and substantive and the other is psychological. >> i really disagree. >> i know you do. >> we could have a good discussion about this if we had more time. the idea that if the debt ceiling lapses, peter, that means that we can no longer borrow from credit markets and can't finance our debt. >> we're doing most of our borrowing right now from the federal reserve. it's printing money and buying the debt. let's be honest about what's going on. >> we could not do that -- sorry. >> peter, you are outnumbered because this man right here, steve kornacki, fully believes it's a fiscal slope and he's branded that on this show many, many times. 2-1 in favor of fiscal slope to a cliff. you're wrong, sir. good night. >> that's a great way to decide it. >> just because you're a -- >> guys, what's for dinner? >> i spend a lot of time on cnbc because you're outnumbered doesn't mean you're wrong. >> good point. >> jared and peter, tha
's bring in bloomberg "newsweek" senior writer and is the author of "glock the rise of america's gun." the nra blamed everything but the gigantic number of guns in america a situation which they worked very hard to create. they blamed video games, music, nobody watches music videos any more. they had the audacity to roll out a new product guns for every school. that's good for business. are you surprised of the tact they took today >> yeah. even i was surprised and i've written about these issues for many years. i thought the nra was going to be conciliatory for at least a day two. the fact they went straight to the mattresses and declared war on everybody in sight from the media to political elites was surprising. and i think they've just chosen a strategy that they are going to preach to their base and go for the fundraising and that's what we saw today. >> paul, let's talk about one of the specific measures that's been proposed which is a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban from the '90s. i've been somewhat skeptical that's the right political approach because i think the bat
saying none of it will lead to change. >>> i'm s.e. cupp. i like red, white and blue. buy america. >>> no one likes last-minute holiday shopping. i have a gift for the sports fan who has everything. >>> will it be pink or blue presents under my family tree? it is not both. i have an announcement. hit follow and come along for "the cycle." >>> the mayans believe the world ends tonight. that's one way to end the fol follies of washington. the rivalry between president obama and speaker boehner is taking over d.c. rivalry, mayans, makes me think of basketball since the mayans invented the earliest form of basketball. >> no. >> it's a fact. >> it is thursday. of course i'm doing sports metaphors. what else did you expect? we start with the new york knicks and the nets. we'll get to d.c. too. so you know, really compromise in there. >> talks to the heartland, people, there. >> all right, guys. the last two times these teams met it was the nail bite we are fans not sure who would be ahead at the final buzz. on wednesday, the latest, knick star anthony returned to the hardwood coming off
is very important t is also about asian voters. it is about a multiethnic america. i don't know if you read, the census reported today, we are fast becoming a minority/majority country and i think that's really important to keep in mind. >> hopeful that space is already being create forward more honest conversation and helping to push that forward. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you so much for having me. >>> up next from imgrigs jobs to the fiscal cliff, would congress actually get more done if we took away the cameras? what do you say, jimmy? that from a man who has never met a camera he didn't like. we love you. here next. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can
of washington, d.c. we have now -- middle america, we are talking now. we have new york and washington sports. >> really representative. >> no television -- few television moments of 2012 compared to krystal reading the newt gingrich press release which was amazing. they'll study it on "inside the actor's studio" for years to come. you read it better than he could have done and that's saying a lot. >> thank you. i'm proud. i am proud of that moment. i think i had some dramatic flourishes that i will -- >> right. standing the tortured metaphor, one last time. you don't need to look in to a chrrystal ball. "the cycle" loved one person above all, so here "the cycle's" person of the year is jennifer granholm. >> in ohio! 150,000 jobs! and in the great state of michigan! 211,000 good-paying, american jobs! all across america! manufacturing is rebounding! why? excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my poli
to see america's favorite nerd is back at the table. welcome, steve. i hope you feel better. >> that's nice about you. >> i wasn't talking about myself. 1823, silent films star harold lloyd gave us a thrilling moment in american history. here it is. ♪ >> there was no computer generated special effects back then. that was a literal cliff-hanger, and 90 years later it keeps you on the edge of your seat. the literal cliff-hanger is what we have in congress right now. there's little to no doubt we'll avoid doomsday, but for a while we hang over the aabyss in a daredevil stunt of our own making. this makes americans believe congress is a bunch of big, fat liars. when it comes to honesty, congress ranked so low they're second to used car salesmen. it's a fee even harold lloyd wouldn't attempt to pull off in exchange for an over climactic conclusion. today we debay tut the wheel of fortune style. we use it to determine how to refer to the debate. cliff, slope, fiesta or follies. today we go to fiscal fiesta. are you ready for this fiesta party? >> i'm thrilled and very excited, yes. i wis
that the status quo is acceptable and that's a mass killing a week and the price of freedom in america means that thousands of people, thousands of children blown away all the time and since when does americans say, oh well, we can't do anything and fix this problem? that's not american right there. i don't want to take away your guns in new hampshire or your father's guns but my father carries a handgun every day because of where his office is and afraid of getting shot every day and i want less guns so he doesn't go to work every day and fear he's going to be shot. that is critical and that's not the america that we should accept. >> all right. amid the tragedy of this week, we did have a moment of relief as we all learned that nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel and his crew are all free and safe. he and his crew were kidnapped thursday morning in syria. they were released late last night and richard described the harrowing ordeal this morning and from all of us at "the cycle," richard, we are so glad you're okay. >> we were with gunmen, rebels. they executed one of them on th
the religious ethnic group in america. hispanics are tied. women and i don't understand why are against marijuana legalization, 52% to 44%. but i think a lot of americans are seeing that theç prohibiti of marijuana is not working. it is not positive. marijuana's not a gateway drug. criminalizing weed is not sustainable. we have to treat it like alcohol. >> i think if we can just talk about sort of what republicans need to do about the youth vote, to sort of synthesize all of your points here, i think it's really tricky because young people by definition become older people. right? so it's hard to treat them as a monolith. young peoples' views on taxes change as they get older and different than women voters and black voters and gay voters who will always be women and black and gay. it's disingenuous for republicans to say we're pro-pot and then young people we're pro-pot. i don't think that looks very good so i think as i've said before when it comes to gay marriage and pot, maybe a less strident message is a good one, a more inclusive message. we have talked about ways the republican
no idea. this is news to me right now. america and i are going to learn this right now live. >> wait for it. senator jim demint announcing he's going to resign from the senate to go lead heritage foundation. now, i know this is brand-new to you, so you can take a moment to digest. do you think that this changes the grounds of negotiations for the fiscal cliff, and do you think that he's in some way -- he's been aa very ardent tea party supporter, critic of john boehner even with his initial proposal. is he going to wield actually more power at the heritage foundation than he does right now as a senator? >> it's always a joke when anybody talks about wielding more power out of elective office as a civilian than in elective office. it's a real help to the republicans in the senate because he has cost them the senate. he has done more damage to the senate and most especially to republicans in the senate than anyone else. he has backed these crazy, nutty tea parties who have gutted the republican nomination for senate in various states around the country, and then he went on to lose to d
other families around america, as well. if this passes and the governor says he will sign these in to law, probably tomorrow, michigan will become the 24th state to become a right to work state, a lot of people here at least unhappy about that. back up to you guys. >> all right. thanks, ron mott, in lansing, michigan. let's take this to the table now. toure, your thoughts? >> a friend of mine at the protests as a journalist. he said in the building they're saying they won't leave and may have a violent removal ahead of us. she talked about americans for prosperity. their tent force bring dismantled after throwing pennies at the union workers. your labor isn't worth these. this is not concern of workers or choice or freedom. the buzz words thrown around. this is about helping business lower wages in states where they have right to work laws, higher rates of poverty and lower wages by almost $9,000. >> and lower unemployment in those states. >> not always. >> not true. >> yes, true. >> it's about the right of less power and to make less money. and you're empowering people to
years. up next, is america in the tloes of a religious revival? it may not feel like it, but the numbers show religion is as powerful and influential as ever. [ female announcer ] a classic meatloaf recipe from stouffer's starts with ground beef, unions, and peppers baked in a ketchup glaze with savory gravy and mashed russet potatoes. what makes stouffer's meatloaf best of all? that moment you enjoy it at home. stouffer's. let's fix dinner. [ man thinking ] oh, this gas. those antacids aren't working. oh no, not that, not here! [ male announcer ] antacids don't relieve gas. gas-x is designed to relieve gas. gas-x. the gas xperts. >>> he found 7 in 10 americans are at least moderately religious and about 40% of americans attend service at least once a week. by many metrics we're about as religious as almost any time since the great depression, but there's one big countertrend. since 1969 there's hey sharp, steady rise in americans with no religious identity and don't know what their religious is. god is alive and well says our next guest, that's the title of his book, but an increasing s
on republicans to stop being party poopers. >> i believe america only succeeds and thrives when we've got a strong and growing middle class. i want us to bring down our deficits but i want to do it in a balanced, responsible way. and i want to reward -- i want a tax code that rewards businesses and manufacturers, like detroit diesel right here creating jobs right here in redford, right here in michigan. right here in the united states of america. >> rhetoric like that might be working. look at the headline today. end game approaching as it's looking more and more likely that the republicans forced to give in on taxes. house speaker john boehner after a secret white house meeting this weekend says the lines of communication between both sides remain open. but what would the gop demand for a concession on taxes and how much leverage do they have left? let's bring back dr. jay john allen for politico. how are you, sir? >> doing very well. i was concerned about the wheel of misfortune there on the fiscal cliff. >> i'm worried about it, too. but let's talk about that. how much leverage do the
that newtown was the safest place in america. what is the newtown you're finding today? >> reporter: well, the newtown that we're finding today, toure, is one that's grieving. grieving for the children that were expecting to hear that we were killed and family who is are grieving as well as the families who rushed to that school early this morning to be reunited with the kids after the traumatic and tragic experience today and unfolded at the elementary school and this picturesque new england town where one road leads in to the main street and a few businesses and this elementary school sits on a hill. of course, we have heard about these shootings all around the country in the past few decades before but this shooting involves some of the youngest students that we have been hearing about. you mentioned earlier the shooter going in what we believe we're hearing in to a kindergarten room where his mom worked, opened fire there and in other areas of the school and investigators are still at that school at this hour obviously. a lot to deal with. a lot to pour over in terms of the crime scen
in this country. here we'll grapple with all of that in the days and weeks to come as america will. if the slaughter of 26 doesn't provoke real reform, you have to wonder what will. first, we have to heal. so for the next hour, we discuss recovery. we begin with the president in newtown last night. >> we gather here in memory of 20 beautiful children and 6 remarkable adults. they lost their lives in a school that could have been any school. in a quiet town full of good and decent people. that could be any town in america. >> and this last hour on the senate floor. >> i ask that the united states senate observe a moment of silence to honor the victims of the sandy hook elementary school tragedy. >> today, newtown starts the first of 26 funerals. two students will be laid to rest this afternoon. first is jack pinto. a new york giants fan. smart kid. number 8, victor cruz, on sunday the giants star cruz wore jack's name on the cleats. also being laid to rest today, 6-year-old noah pozner calling his twin sister his best friend. she was in another classroom and she survived. nbc's mich
from the economy to the tragic and senseless acts of gun violence across america. there is one answer for both problems. s.e. is on the dl, but we will roll on for the final wednesday of 2011. [ sniffs ] i have a cold. [ sniffs ] i took dayquil but my nose is still runny. [ male announcer ] truth is, dayquil doesn't treat that. really? [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus fights your worst cold symptoms, plus it relieves your runny nose. [ breathes deeply ] awesome. [ male announcer ] yes, it is. that's the cold truth! . >>> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. when i said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy. we need to have every single school in america immediately deploy a protection program, proven to work and by that, i mean armed security. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, call me crazy. it's the one thing that would keep people safe. the nra would try to do that. there monsters out there every day and we need to do something to stop it. a g
and if the unions don't answer that call with new ideas and a new program, america will be a right to work nation by the time hillary rodham clinton completes her second term. i particularly like that last part. what actually happened politically on the ground in the failure of that constitutional amendment. what did the argument look like there? >> well, the union decided they wanted to put this on the ballot because the right to work discussion kept bubbling up. they wanted to put an end to it. what they did instead of just saying let's not deal with right to work, let's do that and they wanted to repeal a lunch bunch of other laws too. a lot of people felt it was after overreach. even democratic party officials say privately that perhaps they bit off too much with the proposal and as a result as soon as it failed so badly, right to work came up again. >> were democrats united behind that proposition though? i mean democratic leadership and not voters. >> absolutely. absolutely. a ton of money was spent to try to get it pass and defeat it. it got defeated and the unions said a lot of people, ev
causes of violence related deaths in america. from 5 to 9, almost every category, the number one cause of death is a gun. i should be able to know, hey, there's a gun there. i choose to not go there. if you have it for deterrence, you should want people to know, don't come in here. we're packing. >> it's totally different to make that choice for yourself, advertise that you have a gun. adam lanza stole it from his mother and the name wouldn't have been on this list. >> hold on. there's the point, krystal, i think. nancy lanza would have been a law abiding gun owner and i would like to know if i was moving out to the suburbs, i would like to know if the next door neighbor had a stockpile of weapons like she had. that's a decision that if you're moving in to a community, moving in to a particular neighborhood, i do think there's valuable information there. if you have kids or just in general, if you're going to live in an area, valuable to know, are lots of privately owned firearm s in this area. i'm in the middle on the ethics. there's a serious issue of pausing and thinking about it na
time. i didn't catch the question. >> what can the millions of people in america who are thinking about newtown and grieving along with them, what can we all do for the people of newtown right now? >> yeah, well, from what i understand there's an outpouring of love of people wanting to come alongside in any way they can. as a christian, there's like-minded churches coming alongside by praying and we know that god is sovereign and involved in every detail of the events and we take great encouragement of prayers of christians around the nation wanting to see this be used as it says in romans 8:28 for good for those who trust god and know him. so the good is that we can look past the death and i think so many people get stuck on the death which is tragic, which is terrible, which needs to be acknowledged and grieve and weep with those that weep as the bible tells us in romans chapter 12. we need to do that and not stay there. we need to look at something bigger going on and that is what god is revealing about himself in this and what he's revealing, one, is that there is the reality of sin
